The Witches Hat

It has been way too long since I've posted to my blog.  Lots of reasons but mostly because I've moved from PA to VA.  Not an easy task when you're doing it by yourself.  Not to mention I'm no spring chicken!  And it seems my furry friends aren't much help!  Speaking of furry friends I'm no longer 5 Bichons.  I lost my furry little man Snickers this year right before the move.  He was diagnosed with liver failure and was having very violent seizures all too frequently because of it.  My sweet Rosie girl passed earlier this year so we are 3 Bichons and me now. 

I've managed to find some of my stamping supplies and made these adorable little witches hats. They are not my original creation.  You can find instructions for them here on the Chic n Scratch you tube video from Angie Juda.  They are so easy to make.  The little ghost is a punch I've had in my stash for years.  Everything else is Stampin Up - black glimmer paper,  Happy Hauntings dsp and su clothes pins.

Thanks for visiting today.

Stampin Up Berry Baskets for Easter!

I made these  Easter Berry Baskets for my son and his family!  They will be going off in the mail today.  The Berry Basket Bigz L die is perfect for most any occasion.  I used several punches and some framelits to make the bunnies.  The sentiments are from the For Peeps Sake stamp set in the Occasions catalog and Hippity Hoppity is from the stamp set And Many More.  Here are some individual photos a little closer:
Thanks so much for visiting today.  I hope you like my baskets and bunnies!

Have a great day.

Cheerful Critters Birthday!

I made this card for a special young lady whose 13th birthday was yesterday!  It's going off in the mail today.  The inspiration for this card came from here from Lee Conry for Stamping and Blogging.  I changed a few things but the concept is the same.  The strip at the bottom is Sweet Sadie Washi Tape.  The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes.  Gotta love those Cheerful Critters!  A strip of Blushing Bride Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and some sequins finish off this Pink Pirouette A2 card.  The Bunny is colored with my blender pen and Pink Pirouette reinker in the lid of the ink pad.

Happy Birthday Sarah!

Thanks for stopping in today.  Have a wonderful day!

Stampin Up Butterfly Framelit Birthday!

The white layer is embossed with the Lovely Lace tief.  Flowers are punched from Painted Blooms dsp with the Petite Petals punch.  Leaves are Wild Wasabi cs and punched from the Bird Builder Punch.  I added a 1/4 in. punch to the center of each flower from the same dsp with a Pearl in the center.  I used the medium butterfly from the Butterfly framelits and more pearls.  The sentiment is from the Flower Patch stamp set and is stamped on a leaf from the coordinating framelits - finished with a Wild Wasabi candy dot.  Butterfly and base A2 card are Rich Razzleberry. 

I hope stuff is blooming where you are.....

Moon Lake...Thinking of You

I loved the Moon Lake stamp set the moment I saw it in the new catalog......last June!  I'm just now putting some ink on it.  I stamped the duck image with Memento black ink and then die cut it with the Labels framelits.  The image is colored with my markers - Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Crumb Cake.  The sun is Daffodil Delight.   I used Soft Suede and Lost Lagoon ink on the feathers from Four Feathers and die cut them with their matching framelits.  The button is from the Very Vintage collection with a Linen Thread bow and the sentiment is also from the Moon Lake stamp set.....fits perfectly in that feather! The ribbon is Lost Lagoon stitched satin.  Card stock is Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Whisper White.

Have a great day and thanks for taking a look today.

Summer Silhouettes Flower Patch

Spring is coming, Spring is coming....not soon enough however!  We had a lovely 60 degree day last Tuesday but alas we are back to the 40's again....sigh.  So to encourage the weather man I did some flowers for today's post.  I've been watching watercolor videos and decided to use my Stampin Up products to create today's A2 card.  Truth be told the watercolor piece started out bigger.  My nimble (not) fingers smeared ink on a portion of it...dang!  So I cut it down and changed my layout!  All in all I was happy with the way it turned out. 

 Coastal Cabana, Very Vanilla and Watercolor cardstock
Bordering Blooms, Summer Silhouettes and Flower Patch (sentiment)
Coastal Cabana SAB ribbon, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Banner Thinlit (Circle card Thinlit set)

Hope Spring is right around the corner where you are!  Thanks for stopping in today.

Sheer Perfection Gold

I love the newly added Sheer Perfection vellum to this year's Sale a Bration.  When I saw this card over at the Stampin Schach here I couldn't wait to case it.  I copied the layout but changed out the colors and sentiment.  I used Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold cardstock.  The butterfly is double layered, punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch on Gold Foil and again with a scrap of the Sheer Perfection vellum.  I adhered Gold Sequin trim to Gold Satin ribbon and stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Basics with Encore Gold ink.  I love how it turned out.  Hope you do too!

Thanks for stopping in today.
